Put the melted sugar in a tin foil or greased soda stream bottle and pressurize as high as possible. Then keep it under pressure whilst it is setting. Dang. I should be hanging in the kitchen with Claire haha.

You almost had it... All you needed was a pressure container. The dry ice does the rest, no baking soda needed ;)

This episode shows how supportive the BA test kitchen members are of each other. It feels like they would totally succeed at a ropes course or wilderness weekend challenge.

Okay but there is already a candy made with baking soda and acid - I'm not sure how common it is in the US, but it's called ahoj Brause - I've had it a bunch of times in Germany. Does the same foaming action seen here.

Okay so here is the thing soda and pop does not make anything explode. I did a experiment and Put pop rocks and soda together and put a ballon over the Erlenmeyer flask. All the balloon did was inflate the slightest bit. Not even close to be able to blow up. So it might cause bloating. But I’m almost positive it wouldn’t blow up.
